"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

A year later, Margot begins her sophomore year with renewed hope. She's grown as a person, and she's ready to make a name for herself. Enter Carolyn Dippet, Margot's nemesis, the meanest of "mean girls" whose mission in life it to thwart Margot's every attempt at success or happiness. And when Carolyn announce her candidacy for sophomore class president at Kipperton High, well, Margot decides she can't take that lying down.
Beth Rodgers does such a remarkable job of capturing the essence of the teenage mind. Through Margot's eyes, who has an understandable-but-often-annoying tendency to overanalyze EVERYTHING, we appreciate that when you're still developing as a person, who you are inside and what you present on the outside are often two very different things. We want Margot to succeed, to have friends, to end up happy with hunky junior and musician Kirk. And most of all, we want her to get her sweet revenge on Carolyn. Does she? (not saying)
Though written in third person, the story is told from Margot's POV, and Ms. Rodgers has surrounded her with a great cast of characters that are as true-to-life as can be; all have flaws, but none of them are caricatures. By the time it's done, you'll feel like part of the gang. That's a true gift.
I look forward to reading about Margot's junior (and senior) years. But please, Ms. Rodgers, don't make me wait two years for the next one! (wink)
Margot is your average high school sophomore, but she starts out this book in a much better standing than the previous one. She has her best friends, most of whom she acquired in the first book, along with a great family and a good head on her shoulders. Enter the cute junior Kirk who starts crushing on her and you have the makings for a good year. But nothing can be perfect. Kirk has a past that threatens to catch up with them and Margot isn't satisfied just being one of the students. She wants to be a leader and decides to launch a presidential campaign.
I'm excited to see what she does with another year of high school under her belt. In this book, we see her begin to realize that mean girls will always be mean girls and sometimes people feel the need to even hide things from their friends to keep their cool factor at that age. Margot is a character that just about anyone can root for.
